Sqitch on Debian

The Debian Sqitch Apt package tends to lag behind several versions, but provides easy access to Debian and Ubuntu users. For example, to install Sqitch with PostgreSQL and SQLite support:

apt-get install sqitch libdbd-pg-perl postgresql-client libdbd-sqlite3-perl sqlite3

An alternative that gets you the latest version of Sqitch is to just apt-get the external dependencies, and then build Sqitch itself via cpanminus. To install Sqitch with [MySQL] support, for example:

apt-get install build-essential cpanminus perl perl-doc mysql libdbd-mysql-perl
cpanm --quiet --notest App::Sqitch

The client and connection libraries for each engine are:
